The Path to Improvement

Tooth Extraction with Dr. Tafreshi

At Aliso Viejo Family Dental Group, we understand that your teeth are valuable natural tools, which is why our dentists will always try to preserve them whenever possible. However, in some cases, Tooth Extraction is necessary for the benefit of your overall oral health. This may be required due to severe tooth decay or gum disease, an impacted wisdom tooth, or in emergency situations such as a tooth being fractured in an accident. Schedule a consultation with Aliso Viejo Family Dental if you are experiencing any kind of tooth pain.

Improve Oral Health

What is a Tooth Extraction?

While the preservation of your teeth is always the main goal, there are certain situations where Tooth Extraction must be done for your health. Impaction is one of those situations. Impaction occurs when an erupting tooth is unable to break through the gum tissue and is most commonly associated with wisdom teeth.

Impacted Teeth: Different Types Affecting Tooth Extraction

  • Horizontal: The molar lies horizontally below the gum line and pushes into the adjacent molar
  • Vertical: The molar lies vertically, in almost normal orientation, below the gum line
  • Angular: The molar lies at an angle, usually pointing toward the back of the mouth
  • Partial: The molar has partially erupted from the gum line but is now stuck

Save The Surrounding Teeth

What are the benefits of Tooth Extraction?

If you have an impacted tooth, most likely, you will experience pain, sudden sensitivity in the surrounding teeth, and your gums will be swollen. These will only continue to progress if the tooth remains impacted. Furthermore, impacted teeth can possibly cause an abscess or infection to form. During a Tooth Extraction Aliso Viejo dental expert Dr. Tafreshi removes the affected tooth and allows your mouth the heal from the trauma of impaction.

Comfort is Our Priority

Your Tooth Extraction Procedure

The first step in the tooth extraction process is to make you comfortable. You will be sedated and anesthetized so you feel no pain during the procedure. Then, your dentist will make a small incision in your gum to reach the impacted tooth. Specialized tools will be used to loosen and extract the tooth from the gum line. Then, the incision will be closed with sutures, and gauze will be placed on the sutures. You will begin to wake up and then will be able to go home.

Keep It Clean

Tooth Extraction Recovery and Aftercare

In Aliso Viejo Tooth Extraction patients usually go back to normal within a few days and can return to their routine activities within 48 to 72 hours. However, it can take several weeks for the jawbone to heal completely. Therefore, if you plan to replace the tooth with a dental implant, it's best to wait a few months to allow for a full recovery. It's essential to follow your dentist's post-surgical instructions and keep the extraction site clean. You should avoid brushing directly over the extraction site until your dentist tells you it's safe to do so. Additionally, taking all prescribed medications and avoiding strenuous activities for at least two days will promote a speedy recovery.

To ensure a successful recovery after a Tooth Extraction Aliso Viejo dental experts at AVF Dental will provide you with detailed post-surgical instructions. These instructions will include guidelines for maintaining good oral hygiene, taking medications as prescribed, and avoiding strenuous activities. To promote healing, it's essential to keep the extraction site clean by gently rinsing the area with an antimicrobial mouthwash two to three times a day. You should also take all prescribed medications, including antibiotics and pain relievers, as directed. While avoiding strenuous activities for the first few days, it's best to ask your dentist when it's safe to resume normal routines. By following these guidelines, you'll be on your way to a speedy recovery after your tooth extraction.

Tooth Extraction Frequently Asked Questions

The healing process can vary depending on the complexity of the tooth extraction, but typically, it takes several days to two weeks for the gum tissue to heal. It's important to follow your dentist's post-surgical instructions and take care of the extraction site to promote a speedy recovery.

Dr. Tafreshi will use a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth being extracted. However, you may experience some pressure or discomfort as the tooth is being removed. Your dentist may also prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort after the procedure.

It's important to avoid eating or drinking for the first few hours after a tooth extraction to allow the blood clot to form at the extraction site. After that, you can begin to eat soft foods and drink plenty of fluids. Avoid drinking through a straw or smoking, as these actions can dislodge the blood clot and delay the healing process. Your dentist will provide you with specific post-surgical instructions regarding eating and drinking.
